The Burwell Economic Development Program was established in 2004 to create a program which retains jobs and makes existing businesses more competitive and profitable. The economic development board of directors consists of six members appointed by the mayor, with the approval of the city council, along with the executive director. The board of directors meets on the third Thursday of each month at noon in the Great Western Bank conference room, 163 Grand Avenue, Burwell, Nebraska. All meetings are open to the public.
The mission of the Burwell Economic Development Board is to promote economic growth by retaining, growing, and expanding businesses in the Burwell area. The Burwell community is very supportive of its existing businesses and eager to support new business ventures. To show support for our local business community the Burwell Economic Development office has an ongoing business and expansion program, offering a Revolving Loan Fund, as well as other support programs.
